washington. the intelligence community and the upper echelons of our military. as you know, former four star general and c.i.a. chief david petraeus, here he is, quit last week after admitting that he had an affair with his biographer, paula broadwell. now, paula broadwell allegedly sent threatening e-mails to jill kelley who is a "tampa socialite" who did charitable work for the military. broadwell apparently thought that kelley was also having an affair with petraeus. and upon receiving broadwell's e-mails, kelley contacted the fbi which began investigating. now, jill kelley also has hired crisis communications expert judy smith. she has worked with monica lewinsky with kobe bryant and with former senator larry craig. and that all has a lot of folks scratching their heads. why would a woman who was the target of a nasty e-mail or two need a reputation fixer? well it turns out that while investigating petraeus, the fbi uncovered 20,000 to 30,000 potentially inappropriate pages of documents mostly e-mails that kelley ex
for the "national journal." she's coming to us from washington. and also in washington, david sheppardson, the d.c. bureau chief of the detroit news. welcome to you both inside "the war room." >> thanks, governor. >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: amy let me start with you. the actual number of electric plug-in cars sold here as a percentage of the overall sales is very small. but talk about whether it is considered at least rapidly growing. >> i think it is all relative and it is growing. and it is growing substantially from where it was in say 2011 to where it is poised to be in 2012 after the next month when we see the final sales in december. it went from 2.23% in 2011, total car sales to right now it is at 3.3%. so it is going up. still a very small piece of the pie. i think that's what you need to remember that you need to keep this in perspective. one interesting dynamic is that a lot of the competition among the electric cars and the hybrids are actually each other. as opposed to traditional gasoline cars. >
shock waves through washington but suddenly resigning over an extramarital affair. plus united states now has only one female democratic governor the quantity is embarrassing, the quality on the other hand is not. new hampshire's mag give hanson is going to end ter "the war room." and the destruction provided by hurricane sandy provided a climate change overhaul. so now what do we do? we'll pose that great to the great bill mckib bonn. it's friday night. we are just getting started.

lobbying organizations in washington d.c. according to grover norquist 219 house members and 39 senators have signed americans for tax reform's no new taxes pledge. grover norquist's pledge. but now with the fiscal cliff looming, lawmakers who were once staunchly against raising revenues seem to be changing their tone a little bit. and grover norquist's influence may be fading fast. >> fewer and fewer people are signing this pledge. >> the pledge is dead. >> i'm not saying it's dead but i am saying the majority of members of congress see the fiscal cliff we want to sit down and we want to get something worked out. >> if you appropriate some of the money you achieved by eliminating deductions and loopholes to the national debt, even though that may technically violate the pledge, sign me up. that's a reasonable accommodation for a republican to make. >> jennifer: for the record, that was senators john mccain and lindsey graham so the question is this grover norquist's last stand? here with an answer is donnie fo
his guard among a group of fundraisers haven't we seen this movie before? with much of washington still in the throws of general disarray, the president holds his first post election press conference. as to this mandate business. >> obama: i got one mandate. i got a mandate to help middle class families, and families that are working hard. that's my mandate. >> jennifer: and tax cuts to the rich? >> obama: when it comes to the top 2% what i'm not going to do is extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it. >> jennifer: susan rice has been under assault as of late. >> obama: when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. >> jennifer: alrighty then. things under control here. we'll just get on back to our regularly scheduled programming. previously on "capitalcapitol affair"." >> obama: general petraeus had an extraordinary career. he serveed this country with distinction in iraq afghanistan, and head of c.i.a. people are innocent until proven guilty. >> jennifer: that's president obama speaking
cook budget and tax correspondent for the national journal coming to us from washington d.c. welcome inside the war room. >> thanks so much for having me. >> jennifer: you bet. it's the speaker's move now what do you think he will ask for in addition to maybe what we have described here? and when do you think that he will come back with a plan? >> i think what we have to look for next week is, you know, the speaker coming back with some sort of plan that asks for more spending cuts. the president the initial plan that he put forward today through secretary geithner had some $400 billion in spending cuts, that was a big gap between that and the revenue that the president was asking form i think the speaker will come back and say went much bigger spending cuts, we want them to take effect immediately along with any revenue that we want. and the speaker going to look for big drastic changes in medicare medicaid and perhaps social security. >> jennifer: i agree. and i don't know that -- i believe that social securit
he was going to change the tone in washington. and every president says that. but the president does vice president the power to change the tone in washington. it takes two to consummate this tango, and obama tried. obama tried in many ways and at many different times as you know, the stimulus was more than one-third tax cuts he adopted a republican ideas for his health care reform. he went to republicans many times and said what will it take to get you to compromise with me on this bill and other bills, and he got no votes at all. so the republican's position is disrupt, be destructive, watch things fall apart, and then point their finger at him. >> jennifer: i'm curious what you think -- i have this theory that -- again, i could be all wet, but in the theme of hurricane sandy that bloomberg and chris christie who both need now significant investments to shore up their infrastructure to make sure these rolling storms which this won't be the last one since climate change is happening, that they might help to lead a charge in congress to do something finally about
that all over washington, d.c. today. there are major issues the white house and congress have to confront immediately, like the looming fiscal cliff and avoiding that disaster is going to require both sides to compromise. president obama in his victory speech made it very clear where he stands. >> obama: you voted for action, not politics as usual. you elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. and in the coming weeks and months, i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together. >> jennifer: and so despite everything i said in the first block, actually there was hope today. you had house speaker john boehner who actually opened a door that many people thought was shut. >> for the purposes of forging a bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem, we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions. >> jennifer: what? so does speaker boehner mean what he says? here to answer that question and more, is host of "viewpoint," and former new york governor eliot

keeping my own naughty and nice list for washington. so you should keep your eye on who gets some correct this year. there are going to be some members of congress who get 'em and on don't. >> jennifer: that was president obama at the connect toy factory factory. he was warning congress they might end up on the naughty list. and he asked republicans to extend the bush era tax cuts for those making less than $250,000, but not for those making more. echoing the holiday theme with this grinch like association. >> let's not kid ourselves. i'm not trying to make this more difficult. >> jennifer: stalemate. didn't we just start talking? oh wait, he's just posturing right? to sort out the latest tough talk from the posture is michelle bernard founder of the bernard center center for women public policy. welcome back inside "the war room," michelle. >> thank you. >> jennifer: so, how serious is the stalemate that speaker boehner announceed today? >> i was listening to that sound bite a second ago, and i don't know if i want to cry or if i want to laugh. i don't know how we get to a stalemate whe
't the only one looking forward to the next fight. washington insiders are ready to rumble over the fiscal cliff and how to keep the country from careening over it, for a sense of what's at stake let's just take a tiny peek over the edge. if congress cannot reach a deal, every tax cut that was enacted since the year 2001 would expire. most importantly the bush tax cuts. and that means an average $3500 tax increase per household. on top of that, we would see $110 billion in spending cuts next year followed by $1.2 trillion in spending cuts over the next ten years. now all of the pundits and the prognosticators and the prospect purveyors and the public accountants, they all predict that going over the fiscal cliff is going to wreak havoc on the economy. it's called the fiscal cliff. it's described in the suicidal terms. it is apocalyptic. it is armageddon, the end of everything we hold dear. today, the horror was amplified by a new congressional budget office report that said that if we did go over the fiscal cliff
up in the morning without your cup of coffee. >> jennifer: exactly. there was a recent "washington post" editorial who said that the president keeps his cool when the right insults him, but he gets really angry when the right accuses him of playing politics with say national security. do you agree? >> i would argue that one of the things that makes him a great leader but not a good politician is he isn't very petty. particularly earlier he wouldn't respond when he was losing political points to his opponents because he didn't think it was worthy of responding to right? and that cost him down the road and you can see when it comes to someone attacking someone he thinks is qualified to run our country, he gets really angry. same in the debates when he was accused of playing politics with human lives, you saw in his face that that was genuine anger. >> jennifer: so he is attacked from the right and the left, of course comedian bill maher called on president obama to stand up for progressive policies. take a listen. >> but it is now the job of progressives to hold
